The 2024 Nissan Patrol Warrior off-road edition will be the most expensive Nissan Patrol sold in Australia for close to a decade when it arrives in showrooms in the coming weeks.

Developed in Australia in conjunction with Premcar – the Victorian engineering firm behind the former Ford Performance Vehicles – the Patrol Warrior will be priced from $101,160 plus on-road costs.

It is the most expensive Nissan Patrol – and first with a six-figure price tag – since 2015, when the Patrol Ti-L was listed at $114,490 plus on-road costs before the price was slashed to $86,990.

The Patrol Warrior costs $3560 more than the flagship Patrol Ti-L today ($97,600), yet it is in fact based on the entry-level Ti model – which at $84,900 plus on-road costs is $16,260 cheaper than the new Warrior edition.

The Patrol Warrior may double as a send-off for the current Nissan Patrol, which is due to be replaced by a new model expected to be unveiled in the next 12 months – slated to drop the 5.6-litre petrol V8 for a smaller and more fuel-efficient twin-turbocharged petrol V6.

The Warrior upgrades are designed to provide a more aggressive appearance and improve its capabilities off road, with changes to the tyres, wheels, suspension, exhaust and gross vehicle mass.

There is no more power from the 5.6-litre petrol V8 (298kW/560Nm) – matched with a seven-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive – but it now breathes through a louder bi-modal stainless steel sports exhaust with outlets ahead of the rear wheels.

The exterior changes to the Nissan Patrol Warrior are not as bold as the Nissan Navara Warrior ute – the first Warrior model, introduced in 2019 and facelifted in 2021 – and it lacks a bull bar, as one has not been developed for the current Nissan Patrol range.

Styling changes include a red Warrior-branded front bash plate, black wheel-arch flares, black mirror caps and grille trim, Warrior side decals and badges, and a black insert in the rear bumper.

It sits on new-design 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Yokohama Geolander G015 295/70 R18 all-terrain tyres which measure 34.4 inches – some of the largest on any new vehicle sold in Australia.

The Hydraulic Body Motion Control suspension system – which uses hydraulic dampers to keep the body level in corners instead of traditional anti-roll bars – has been reworked, with redesigned front springs, new triple-rate rear springs, progressive-rate rear bump stops, and Premcar-specific tuning.

Nissan quotes a total body lift of 50mm compared to the Patrol Ti on which the Warrior is based, comprised of 29mm from the updated suspension, and 21mm from the larger tyres.

The gross vehicle mass has been increased by 120kg compared to the Patrol Ti, but the carrying capacity (payload) only increases by 48kg due to the weight of the Warrior-specific upgrades. There is no change to the standard Patrol’s 3500kg braked towing capacity.

Nissan and Premcar claim a 40mm wider wheel track compared to the Patrol Ti, with a 40-degree approach angle and 23.3-degree departure angle, the latter including a towbar which was redesigned to fit the Warrior’s full-size all-terrain spare wheel under the vehicle.

The interior has been updated with a black colour scheme, including high-gloss black inlays on the centre console, and Alcantara on the doors and dashboard, with Warrior branding.

However the shape of the dashboard, and the infotainment system remain unchanged – and right-hand-drive Australian Nissan Patrols continue to miss out on the updated interior available in left-hand-drive markets, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Features shared with the Ti model include dusk-sensing headlights, leather-accented upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, keyless entry and start, six-speaker sound system, front and rear parking sensors, and autonomous emergency braking.

Four colours are available: Brilliant Silver, Moonstone White, Gun Metallic, and Black Obsidian.

The 2024 Nissan Patrol Warrior is available to order now ahead of first showroom arrivals due in the coming weeks.
